Hale helps Greenville Red team to victory

GREENVILLE —   Carandal Hale rushed for 102 yards and two touchdowns on 15 carries to help the Red team to a 21-3 victory over the White during the Greenville Lions’ intrasquad football scrimmage on Thursday at T.A. “Cotton” Ford Stadium.

  Hale scored on runs of two and three yards.

  Quarterback Thomas Gore, working with the junior varsity, also scored on a 35-yard run for the Red team. Gore ran for 40 yards on two carries and was 4-of-5 passing for 40 yards.

  Fernando Adame booted a 37-yard field goal for the White team and three extra points for the Red.

  The Red team, which consisted mostly of the first offense, had a 272-132 advantage in total yardage.

  Treveon Heard, who started at quarterback for the Red, was 2-of-10 passing for 20 yards and finished with five yards on six carries.

  Jacob Jarvis, who started at quarterback for the White, went 6-of-12 for 33 yards and also rushed for 51 yards on 11 carries.

  Running back Marquise Mapps was the White team’s second-leading rusher with 37 yards on six carries and also caught two passes for four yards. Chris Whythus rushed for 12 yards on five carries for the White team.

  Robert Cozine was the Red team’s second-leading rusher with 52 yards on seven carries.

  The scrimmage capped 16 spring practices for the Lions, who started their workouts on April 28.

  “I thought we were a little sluggish,” Greenville coach Marvin Sedberry said of the scrimmage. “I don’t know how much of that was the (warm) weather and kids really not knowing what to expect.”

  Both teams lost two fumbles that were recovered by White team defenders Noah Warren and Daniel Ortiz and Red team defenders Jose Rincon and Jacques Hawkins.

  “You’ve got the freshmen and the sophomores in there together. We expected some of that,” Sedberry said of the turnovers.

  Sedberry said the Lions definitely showed progress in their spring training.

  “Overall, when you look at some of the kids out there playing and you look at what they accomplished,” he said. “Now it’s a matter of us improving our execution.”

  The Lions will kick off the 2014 season on Aug. 29 at North Garland. Their only preseason scrimmage is set for Aug. 22 at home against Seagoville.
